Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

The past week the weather has been a little cold.  My son told me that he really wanted some hot chocolate to heat him up. I was too happy to oblige, as I love hot chocolate. I went to all of the stores around me and every single hot chocolate mix that I found, contained sugar and sucralose (an artificial sweetener). I don’t have any issue with people using artificial sweeteners, but my son and I both get an off taste from them. I can’t explain it, but it just does not taste right to us. So after a quick scan of three supermarket aisles, I decided that the commercial brands were out. Therefore, I had to make my own mix. Come to find out, making homemade hot chocolate is quite simple. Mix a few ingredients, add some hot water and boom. Homemade Hot Chocolate!  The homemade hot chocolate mix, is simple and delicious!

Coal Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Coal Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I love baked sweet potatoes, but they take so long to make.  Plus, you have to heat up your oven and thereby heat up your house.  Not what you are looking for when it is hot outside.  So I started to roast the sweet potatoes in coals of the grill.  You need a charcoal grill for this method, but it is worth it.  The high heat sears the outside and makes the sweet potatoes come out super sweet and tender in around 45 minutes.
